Commission agrees on rehiring terms [Mercury, The (South Africa)]
(Mercury, The (South Africa) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) THE COMPETITION Commission had accepted Massmart's remedial plan to reinstate 94 of the 503 employees who had been retrenched in 2009 and 2010, the commission said yesterday. The acceptance follows negotiations between the commission, Massmart and the SA Commercial, Catering and Allied Workers Union (Saccawu). This was done with the aim of achieving compliance with the reinstatement conditions granted by the Competition Appeal Court (CAC) in March 2012 in relation to Walmart's acquisition of a majority stake in Massmart. The terms of reinstatement include several months backpay for employees who participated in the remedial plan and accepted the company's reinstatement offer. Massmart will report to the commission on the progress of the implementation in the next two months. "We acknowledge Massmart's and Saccawu's efforts to resolve this matter ensuring that employees return to work promptly. The commission is satisfied with Massmart's remedial plan and acknowledges that, if properly implemented, it shall be sufficient for compliance with the CAC order," the commission said. - Nompumelelo Magwaza
